KANNAPOLIS — The Kannapolis Intimidators will unveil a new stadium naming rights deal and logo at a ceremony Tuesday, the team said in a press release.
Earlier this week, the team got more good news: Kannapolis city leaders tentatively approved a new lease for the ballpark — currently called Fieldcrest Cannon Stadium — that will require the Class A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox to pay only $1 per year.
The initial lease term would be for five years, with two possible five-year renewal periods. Though city officials acknowledged the lease payment is a token amount, the team will assume some costs of upkeep and maintenance under the terms of the deal.
The naming rights announcement is open to all, the team said. An exhibition game against the Winston-Salem Dash will follow at noon. The Intimidators open the season at home on April 5 against the Hickory Crawdads. The organization drew 138,359 fans in 2011, setting a new franchise record. Today is the last day to order tickets for 75 cents as CMC-NorthEast celebrates its 75th anniversary at the game on April 6.
